In 2018 Annual Conference

Dear Conference Attendee,

We are so excited that you have decided to invest in your career by joining us for FPRA’s 80th Annual Conference – Innovation, Influence & Impact.

In addition to the many engaging and informative professional development sessions we have scheduled, we hope you will take advantage of the fun networking opportunities and resort amenities that will be available to you during your time at the Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort & Spa.

Before arriving in Ponte Vedra Beach, we recommend that you get FPRA’s Annual Conference App on your smart phone or tablet, which features a conference schedule, speaker bios, speaker evaluations, information about the resort and more!

Join the conversation on social media using #FPRA80AC, #GoldenImage and #MyFPRAStory. Also, follow FPRA on Twitter and Facebook or read the FPRA Blog to keep up to date on conference activities and to review sessions you weren’t able to make.

In preparation for the event, we want to ensure that you have all the information you need to make your trip to the Sawgrass Marriott as stress free as possible. Below, you will find directions to the resort and conference information for your convenience.

Check-In for the Sawgrass Marriott begins at 4 p.m. and you must check out by 11 a.m. on the day you are departing.
